Rays released RHP Nick Barnese.
Barnese was a third-round pick of the Rays back in 2007, but his performance has slipped since he began experiencing shoulder issues in 2010. The 24-year-old posted a 5.40 ERA and 35/26 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings last season between rookie ball and Double-A Montgomery. Someone will surely take him on as a reclamation project, but there's not a lot to get excited about. Wed, Mar 27, 2013 12:05:00 PM

Nick Barnese allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings for Single-A Charlotte on Thursday.

He walked one and struck out five. The Rays have gone awfully slowly with their 2007 third-round pick, but Barnese is a fine prospect and it looks like he might finally get a full season in this year. He's 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA after two starts.

2007 third-round pick Nick Barnese pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out nine, for SS Single-A Hudson Valley on Wednesday.

The Rays decided against putting Barnese in full-season ball this year, but he's another one of their talented young pitching prospects. His command really stands out. He's walked just four in 48 innings since being drafted last year.
